SAPULPA, Okla. — The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is investigating a deadly officer-involved shooting in Sapulpa, Okla., Friday.

The incident began when 38-year-old Michael Collins entered the Green Hill Funeral Home at South Main and Green Hill in Sapulpa wanting a drink of water, according to OSBI officials.

The individual Collins encountered at the funeral home called the Sapulpa Police Department because Collins was acting strangely and threatening to harm himself, officials said.

Officials say Collins left the funeral home walking across Green Hill Cemetery and over to the adjacent cemetery, South Heights.

One Sapulpa police officer responded to South Heights Cemetery, officials said. Police say Collins came up to the officer with a knife and the officer shot him one time.

Collins was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead, officials said.

OSBI officials say the officer is on paid administrative leave.

Upon completion of the investigation, a report will be written and submitted to the District Attorney’s Office, officials said. The District Attorney will determine whether or not to file charges.
